Happy Wedding Wednesday, friends! If you’re a flower lover in the midst of planning a wedding, then this blog post is dedicated to you. If you’re not planning a wedding, then stick around for the sake of knowledge. Knowing what flowers are in season is invaluable information you’ll be glad you have for planning a party, placing a flower delivery, or simply picking up a couple stems on your way home from work.
Summer wedding season is a fun and bustling time for those in the floral industry. Days are spent planning and designing to prepare for weekends stacked with multiple unique weddings, Honestly, we don't mind the madness. Thanks to the season, our coolers are perpetually overflowing with some of our top flower favorites. No complaints here!
For today's blog post, I'm going to share a summer flower guide, greenery guide, and a few eye candy shots of flower varieties that are beautiful and abundant in the summer months. By no means is this display of blooms exhaustive, but it’s a good start. As you'll notice, I chose to display a colorful array of blooms for this post. Keep in mind that some of these flowers come in more colors and varieties than you could imagine.
To get this summer flower party started, here’s a labeled guide of some of our tried-and-true favorites.
If you’re planning a wedding, please feel free to pin any pictures to your wedding board. Just hover over the image to pin.
From left to right we have a single stem of the following: stock, rose, craspedia (or billy ball), snapdragon, fuji mum, and veronica. Lastly, the far right displays two varieties of dahlias. To be honest, I couldn’t pick a favorite between the two.
The color and flower combination options for summer weddings are endless. If you’re anything like me, a serious flower-lover, then the wedding flowers of your dreams would include one of everything. Luckily, that look is currently all the rage. If you haven't seen the bohemian bridal bouquet from last week's blog, then click here.
Most summer blooms pair fabulously with certain filler flowers and greenery that are also readily available in the summer. See our filler flowers and greenery labeled guide below.
From left to right we have solidago, thistle, dusty miller, Queen Anne’s lace, sword fern, waxflower, and seeded eucalyptus. When paired with summer blooms, some serious flower magic ensues. Especially floral designs inspired by wildflower and bohemian motifs.
To wrap up today's post, I'm sharing a few pictures that Julianna and I captured from the arrival of our summer flower inventories. When our guys are processing the newest shipment, you can find me anxiously hovering with my camera in hand. I suppose you could think of me as a helicopter flower mom. When it comes to flowers, I'm shamelessly jubilant.
Queen Anne's Lace
Like I mentioned previously, there are many flowers that I didn’t include in this blog post. Lack of knowledge or love is not my justification. Truthfully, I'm saving some of the beauty for future Wedding Wednesdays. So, stay tuned! There’s an abundance of magnificent flower knowledge and eye candy to come!
Always thinking flowers,
